SOPREMA has been manufacturing roofing and waterproofing products since 1908. Over the last 100 years, we have perfected the art of creating the world’s finest SBS Modified Bitumen roofing membranes.
SBS (styrene-butadiene-styrene) technology was discovered in the late 1960’s by the Shell Chemical Company. Primarily used in the adhesive industry, when blended with asphalt, SBS improves the membrane’s physical properties including greater cyclic fatigue, elongation, elastic recovery and puncture resistance.
SOPREMA uses SBS modified asphalt in our complete line of roofing membranes resulting in the following benefits:
- Improved elongation
- Low temperature flexibility
- Elastic recovery
- Self adhesive properties
- Long term aging
- Ease of application
SOPREMA high performance SBS-modified bitumen membranes utilize various types and designs of reinforcements to ensure that you receive the best product for your specific needs. These reinforcements include non-woven polyester, random fiberglass, composites and combinations of both polyester and fiberglass. SOPREMA SBS-modified membranes provide excellent dimensional stability and depending on the reinforcement, exhibit extraordinary strength and durability, high elongation or high tensile strength; we offer solutions to meet your specific design criteria.
